What COUNTIF formula can I use to count tasks assigned to each person
Options
I need help in finding a formula that'll work. I need to count how many "Monthly Bookkeeping" and "Payroll" tasks are assigned to one each associates.

You should be able to do this with a report that looks at the sheet and then uses the summation features available for a report.
I am assuming that these are two different sheets and will need crosssheet references set up, but to do it with a formula you should be able to do something like this:
=COUNTIFS({Associates}, Associated@row, {Responsibilities #1}, "Monthly Bookkeeping")
You could modify this to get your Payroll calculation as well.
